The Cross-Cultural College Certificate
The Cross-Cultural College Certificate program consists of at least 18.0 units of courses taken from the following thematic areas:
- Multicultural Studies
- International Relations
- Canadian and Asian Studies
A major advantage of the Cross-Cultural College program is that most of the required courses are the same as those which, depending on their plan, students would normally take to fulfill their degree requirements at Queen's.
All students participating in the KGU Cross-Cultural College must take at least one of the three joint courses:the Joint Seminar, the Global Internship, or the Global Career Seminar. Please note that academic credit will be awarded for all courses taken as part of the KGU Cross-Cultural College, including the joint courses.
To qualify for the certificate, students must complete courses from all of the 4 groups listed below. There is no stipulation as to what disciplinary perspective is taken, but ideally Canada, Japan, Asia and Pacific regions would be focussed on in part or in full.
Eligibility & Application
Queen's University students in the Faculty of Arts and Science who are in their 2nd or 3rd-year of an Honours Bachelors degree program are eligible to apply. In particular, arts and social sciences students who have a strong interest in multicultural and comparative studies as applied to Asia and Japan will be particularly keen about this program.
